Men impersonating Tucson Police Officers

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Several men around Tucson are posing as police officers and pulling people over. It's happened a number of times over a 10-day period earlier this month.

These suspects are acting very official. They have a car that resembled a police officer's and wearing what appears to be police attire. Now, investigators are looking for any information on the suspects and asking for any victims to come forward.

The suspect's car, which police have found and are keeping as evidence is described as a dark colored Ford Crown Victoria 4-door sedan. It has blue and red lights above the dashboard and more lighting in the rear window.

The suspect's car did not have any police markings on the side and did not have any sirens on the roof. The dates these suspects were stopping these cars were from June 10-20. They did not issue any citations and at this point, it's unclear why they were pretending to be cops.

It's always okay to question anyone who identifies themselves as a police officer. You can always ask for a photo I.D. and you should never hesitate to call 9-1-1 to verify the person is an officer.

If you have any information on this case you are urged to call 88-crime.
